WHO IS SHE?

Ziggy Schulting, an American actor with a prolific career spanning both stage and film, has made an indelible mark on the New York theatre scene over the past 6 years. Her notable performances in productions like "Teenagers in Love" [Young Becca], "The High Priestess" [Deidre], Bram Stoker’s “Dracula" [Lucy] and "Good Friday" [Video Ensemble] have showcased her versatility and depth as an actor. Collaborating with prestigious theatre companies, Ziggy has had the privilege of working under the guidance of accomplished directors such as Anne Bogart, Sam Schacht, Sherri Eden Barber, Chad Rabinovitz, and a variety of other skilled artists who have made significant contributions in their field.

 

Ziggy's distinction lies not only in her on-stage prowess but also in her extensive training in classic acting techniques. Specializing in Commedia dell’Arte, Shakespeare, Suzuki, Viewpoints, Alexander, Stanislavski, and Strasberg, Ziggy's educational journey includes enriching experiences at Accademia Dell’Arte in Italy, SITI, The Stella Adler Studio, Wesleyan University, Skidmore College, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Theatre, and attended the highly competitive, Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, where she was a Musical Theatre major.   

Ziggy’s Skidmore credits include Julius Caesar [Marc Anthony], Let the Right One In [Mum], Macbeth [First Witch], The Penelopiad [Oracle/Suitor] and Rachel B. Karp’s world premiere of Of White Walls and Worlds [Charlie]. 

In 2019, Ziggy co-founded the production company 3DAYSPRIOR, assuming the pivotal role of Artistic Director. Under her leadership, the company successfully premiered "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" at the Upstairs Theatre in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, followed by a Shakespeare Festival at The Brick. Ziggy's productions have not only graced renowned off-Broadway venues such as The Tank, Dixon Place, and The Brick but have also garnered attention for their innovation and artistic merit.


Beyond her achievements as an Artistic Director, Ziggy has emerged as a fervent advocate for underrepresented stories and voices. In 2019, she pioneered the site-specific reading series, "3DProcess: Plays on Draft," a platform that showcased works by emerging playwrights; including Stefani Kuo’s, "Final Boarding Call," and Grace Parker’s award-winning play, "Why We Have Book Club."

Her latest role of Artistic Director of THE KING BLACK BOX has brought her to Ontario, where she hopes to bring her New York edge to a burgeoning Toronto indie theatre scene. For more information on her latest projects, see thekingblackbox.com.
